About me

I am an assistant professor at the Centre for Economic Demography, Department of Economic History, Lund University (Sweden). I am affiliated with the Radboud Group for Family History and Historical Demography, Radboud University, Netherlands, where I obtained my PhD in 2019.

My research is about long-term changes in population health, the role of families, the changing disease environment, and the social health gradient. I use linked historical and contemporary population registers to study mortality and a range of health indicators, such as reproductive health, stature, morbidity, hospitalizations, and cause-specific mortality. I am PI on the research project “An Age Old Advantage?” funded by Riksbankens Jubileumsfond (RJ) on exceptionally healthy ageing in families in Sweden and the Netherlands.
